the clouds

here’s a little thing a put together from a page of electroplates of clouds and mist i got from an antiques fair the other day. i like clouds, (who doesn’t?) and they will play a significant part in chapter 4 of untitled ape’s epic adventure. But that’s for the future, and there is one and a half chapters to navigate until then.

elsewhere, i finally have a twitter account, so please follow me. whatever next pig lovers, bebo?



it’s all go here at bphq and i’ll tell you why. firstly, i’ve posted page one of untitled ape’s epic adventure chapter two, and will be back to weekly posts (apart from when i go on holiday in two weeks) for the foreseeable.
as previously mentioned, chris sandwich is finished and is doing good business, so don’t forget to pick one up if you haven’t already- i dropped some in at OK Comics in Leeds, and they should be available at Orbital Comics in London now, and if not now, soon enough.
also brand new, the comix reader issue 2 is also hot off the presses, undoubtedly the best quid (yes, just a quid) you can spend on comics at the moment, another editorial triumph by Richard Cowdry, more details here.

lastly, comical animal, issue 4 is also just been made available online, and i’ve done something for it, the pun lovers guide to the british coastline. you pig lovers will know that i love a good pun, but unfortunately i couldn’t think of any good ones, so there’s seventeen ropey ones on there for you to spot. Richard Bruton has said nice things about it on the FP blog, and hopefully it will take off and be a success for good old Jim Medway.

p.s. the ghosts pic was an unfinished thing i was doing for the zine in a day at the IAPF the other week, i didnt have time to get it done before it went to print. never mind eh?

newz round

well, time moves along and i keep on drawing silly things. i have now finished chapter one of untitled ape’s epic adventure so now would be the ideal time to catch up if you need/ want to.
now that’s done, i’m gonna take a few weeks off before starting chapter 2, and work on my page for The Comix Reader issue 2, and i’m considering doing a minicomic for the alternative press fair. I’m also slowly beginning to get stuff together for the long-awaited follow up to Manly Boys, Comely Girls which i’m working on with Gareth Van Brookes.

whilst on the subject of webcomics, my old pal Hugh “Shug” Raine is also doing a weekly ongoing story in a similar vein to mine, By ‘eck!

chapter 1 begins!

another gentle reminder that every sunday* there will be a new page of untitled ape’s epic adventure over on banal pig funnies. unless something major happens, i won’t mention this again. you’re on your own now.

*unless i’ve got better things to do
